, for instance, what rick perry is doing down in texas, a different issue around obama care, he doesn't agree with obama care, but he is at the same time trying to get $100 million in obama care to take care of the elderly and disabled. so it does feel like there is some room for republicans to frame this issue in a way that works for them, in a way that resonates, because, again, this is about children. it's often about the elderly. it's often about the disabled. and this idea that the poor should be demonized, it just doesn't resonate with people. >> well, i hear you about the senator. but even a broke clock is right twice a day. thank you, nia-malika henderson and congresswoman karen bass. thank you for your time. >> thanks for having us on. >> thank you. >>> president obama will speak at the lincoln memorial at tomorrow's anniversary celebration of the march on washington. coming next, i'll speak with two activists fighting for the protection of the right to vote. >>> and more on donald trump facing a $40 million lawsuit for fraud. tonight you'll hear what some of the alleged victims are

, president george w. bush had made 50 visits to his texas ranch totalling all or part of 323 days. knoller said that he always puts the word "vacation" in quotes because as he said u.s. presidents don't really get to take a vacation. the job comes with them 24/7. well, i'm hoping president obama plays lots of golf in the next couple of days or shoots hoops or whatever else he needs to do to maintain his mental edge. i felt the same way about president george w. bush, and i never begrudged him his time at the ranch. all told he was there during 490 days during his presidency. the health of the country is largely a function of the physical and mental health of its commander in chief. and if blowing off a steam with a couple of bogeys or a beer in the clubhouse keeps him sharper when the red phone rings, we're all better off for it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being was.
